    I visited the Butchart Gardens in September. You do not have to visit after 2 PM. Even your lovely photos cannot do justice to the amazing flower sizes, the blends of colors, the plants from all over the world. I just want to go back and back.

    I visited in late June 2010, and was amazed by the beauty of these gardens. I must have taken 200+ pictures while there. No picture can do justice to the real thing and the pictures I have are spectacular. I would have loved to spend the whole day there but we were on a tour and limited in time. I would go back in a heart beat. In fact Victoria B.C. itself is a most majestically beautiful city and the gardens are the pinacle highlight.. They are not to be missed if you are visiting B.C.


    This garden is heaven on earth, will definately
    visit it

    It’s amazing at Christmas, too. From around the first of December to the beginning of January, The Gardens are lit up with a theme of The Twelve Days Of Christmas. They also have a skating rink. It’s stunningly beautiful – like a fairyland

    “Chilly winters”? Who wrote this article?! I assume it was either an American or European with no knowledge of the climate variations in Canada ( a massive country with many different climactic zones). Victoria has a sub-mediterranean climate which gives it a climate milder than most of the continental US and much of northern Europe, including the UK. It is also obvious just by looking at the photos that a cold climate area would not be able to sustain a garden as magnificant as the Butchart Gardens. Ah, the stereotypes never seem to cease . . .

    What is most astonishing about Butchart gardens is the fact that the gardens are built in an abandoned rock quarry. The area was a wasteland when a very creative woman began to rehabilitate the plot and create something of great beauty.

    Sorry if I’m a stickler for spelling, but the province isn’t spelled like the South American country; it’s “British COLUMBIA,” and not “British COLOMBIA.” 😉

    Indonesie!!! Tja, daar verlies ik me altijd mijn eigen ego, onvoorstelbaar maar waar,>>>wonderen van de natuur kan je niet verwoorden en gaat mijn verstand te boven, zwijmel dan maar en waan me echt in het Edens- Paradijs!!!

    Prachtige fotos, die ik hier zie; maar in de natuur is voor mij veel mooier!!! Geeft mij innerlijke rust en kracht!!!
